    I worked at Yahoo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people make Yahoo a great place to work. The company isn't arrogant but purple pride runs deep and most people like to be at work. People are themselves and it has a true relaxed tech style with a fair approach to workload. However when needed people dig deep to and go above and beyond to get things done.

    Cons

    Yahoo has had a bit of a tumultuous time recently so job security has been questionable and there has been a slight fear in the air.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain a professional and inclusive style and refrain from picking out favourites and forming clubs within the organisation.
